IEG Fellowship - Digital Humanities

The Leibniz Institute of European History (IEG) in Mainz awards one fellowship for a period of eight months for doctoral students or one fellowship of six months for postdocs in the field of Digital Humanities.


The fellowship supports international doctoral students or postdocs who wish to carry out their own research project using Digital Humanities methods. There is particular interest in projects that are linked with ongoing research at the IEG as well as current research projects of the Digital Historical Research Unit | DH Lab. At the IEG, you will have the chance to closely collaborate with the researchers in this Lab.

Offer and Requirements

The monthly stipend is € 1,350 for doctoral students and € 1,800 for postdocs. Additionally, you can apply for family or child allowance.

During the fellowship you are required to reside at the Institute in Mainz. You will actively participate in the IEG's research community and the weekly colloquia, where we expect you to present your work at least once during your fellowship.

Proficiency in English is required.
